Coup plot: Court to rule on bail requests today

An Accra High Court is set to rule on a bail application later today by seven of the accused persons facing trial over the alleged destabilization plot against the state.

The seven accused persons who applied for the bail include Colonel Kodjo Gameli, Warrant Officer Class II Dekuwine, Cpl Abubakar, L/Cpl Ali Solomon, and L/Cpl Akanpewon.

The other accused persons are Dr. Mac-Palm, Kafui, alias Ezor, Debrah, and Gershon Akpah.

Today’s ruling follows a fresh application by lawyers of the accused persons. They’ve argued that their clients have been unduly detained for more than 90 days.

A similar application was dismissed by the High Court in November 2019. The court presided over by  Justice George Buadi, held that the accused persons were not entitled to bail because they have not been unreasonably detained.

Also another application by lawyers for embattled senior police officer, ACP Agordzo will also be heard today at the High court.
